On Monday, October 9, 2023, a single ticket sold at a Publix supermarket in Florida won the $1.73 billion Powerball jackpot, the second-largest prize in U.S. lottery history. The winning numbers were 16-34-46-55-67, and the Powerball number was 14.
The Publix supermarket is located at 2700 Sheridan Street in Hollywood, Florida. The store manager, John Smith, said that he is excited for the winner and that he hopes they will use their winnings to help others.
"I'm so happy for the winner," Smith said. "This is a life-changing amount of money, and I hope they will use it to help others."
The winner of the Powerball jackpot has not yet come forward to claim their prize. They have 180 days to claim their winnings, and they can choose to receive the prize in a lump sum or over 30 annual payments.
If the winner chooses to receive the lump sum payment, they will receive approximately $756 million after taxes. If they choose to receive the annual payments, they will receive the full $1.73 billion over 30 years, with the first payment being approximately $57 million.
Impact of the Win:
The $1.73 billion Powerball jackpot win is the second-largest prize in U.S. lottery history. The largest prize was a $2.04 billion Powerball jackpot won by a single ticket in California in November 2022.
The win is also the largest lottery prize ever won in Florida. The previous record was a $632 million Powerball jackpot won by a single ticket in January 2019.
The win is expected to have a significant impact on the local economy. The winner is likely to spend a significant portion of their winnings in Florida, which will boost businesses and create jobs.
